- I am a stay at home mom..now that is! February 19th, 2007 I was involved in a car accident while on vacation in Florida. I awoke in ICU to find out that my only two children Annemarie age 3 and Michael age 5 did not make it. Scrapbooking became such a big part of my life. It helped fill a void that I desperately needed to fill. Our therapist suggested that I take up scrapbooking as a way to memorialize my children, little did she know! So I took that and ran with it.I became obsessed with scrapping and took over the second largest room in my house. Because of my injuries I couldn't go out and get a job, I just scrapped!I printed out 2,000 photos and my journey began. I have made albums for family members and layouts to decorate my craft room. We thought we were done having kids but who expected this tragedy??? I just gave birth in June 2009 to two beautiful baby girls Mia Anne and Gianna Marie named after their brother and sister.I swore that I would keep up with their albums so I won't become overwhelmed so we will see how that works out! My profile picture is the last family picture that was taken of all of us.

Color Throwdown #54
I have to be honest. When I first saw this challenge on the Color Throwdown blog I almost gave up on it because I didn't think I could pull the color combo off. I am extremely surprised on how well those colors work together! I needed to do something simple so I used:
Pumpkin Pie cardstock onto of a cream cardstock card
Stampin' UP! Heartfelt Thanks stamp set~ I did the base flower in Blush Blossom and the overlay in really rust. The leaves I used Always Artichoke. I then mounted them onto Grey cardstock. Each flower is mounted on pop up dots for a raised 3D effect.
There was an empty space to the left so I just used some Stampin Up eyelets and some blush colored ribbon.
What is great about this card is you can use it as a Thank you card or as a Sympathy card.
